Canadian rockers Barenaked Ladies  will release their 11th studio album, All in Good Time," on Mar. 30 following a string of live dates at the Super Bowl and Vancouver Winter Olympics. The band has already been previewing the album's first single, "You Run Away," on a recent U.S. road trip, and the official track will hit radio later this month.
"This is a really important record for us and we're really proud of it," frontman Ed Robertson said in a statement. "We're redefining who we are, and how we communicate as a band, and as friends."
Recording for "All in Good Time" began in spring of 2009 in Toronto, where Roberston and his bandmates teamed up with producer Michael Phillip Wojewoda and mixed the album with Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen , Rolling Stones ). "Good Time" will be released on Barenaked Ladies' Raisin Records through an exclusive worldwide deal with EMI Music.
"The album has an emotional rawness to it that we may have shied away from in the past," added Robertson. "I think we pushed ourselves to heavier places, and also allowed for some really spacious moments. We can't wait to play these songs live."
Barenaked Ladies have so far lined up three gigs leading up to the album release -- a Feb. 6 performance at the pre-Super Bowl event "Taste of the NFL," plus a Feb. 16 gig at the Olympic Victory Ceremony in Vancouver and the Olympic Village Free Show in Whistler on Feb. 17.
